A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Well, first you had U.S. Department of Fish and Wildlife employees planting lynx hair in order to prevent logging and other development on lands across the Northwest, now you've got the journal Nature publishing outright lies about stem cell research. It gives new meaning to the term political science.


[S]uch a coincidence! With the U.S. Senate debating so-called "therapeutic cloning" to produce embryonic stem (ES) cells and other countries, such as Canada, suffering similar political agony, Nature magazine releases letters from two research teams saying that the alternative — so-called adult stem cells — may be worthless.

Nature was so eager to get the news out that it even published the letters online, before the print edition. Both letters attack the "supposed flexibility" of NES cells, as one reporter put it. And the world media swallowed it like a starving mouse downing a chunk of cheddar.


Read the entire article by Michael Fumento. This stem cell debate isn't being fueled by science, medicine or morality. It's being fueled by the research dollar.
